Creative Challenge

Saturday 10 June / All day

Make a small part of some very big art! Take part in our colossal Creative Challenge on Saturday 10 June. Make your mark and decorate a piece of glass that will form part of a large artwork celebrating the Creative Age project. Contribute your creativity and time and help support our group by donating a small amount to our Creative Age project.

Suggested donation of £2 to take part. Children taking part will receive a free gift.

On the day you can also watch artists demonstrate different techniques, as well as browse the exhibition of glass jewellery for sale – all made by the Creative Age participants.

All proceeds from the Creative Challenge will go directly to support the Creative Age project which provides weekly creative sessions for people living with dementia and their carers.
Participants taking part in the weekly Creative Age sessions have created an exciting range of handmade glass jewellery for sale. The range of accessories will be on display and available for sale with all proceeds going directly towards the continuation of the project.

Artists Effie Burns, Zoe Garner, and Sue Woolhouse will be providing glassmaking demonstrations throughout the day, showcasing the different techniques that have been used throughout the project.

 

More about Creative Age 

The project ‘Creative Age’ offers weekly sessions at National Glass Centre for people living with dementia and their partners or carers. Participants work with artists to explore different glass and ceramic techniques in a relaxed and supportive environment. Working with different artists throughout an eighteen-month project, participants have gained skills including glass fusing, engraving, sandblasting, stained glass, and ceramics.

In addition to the weekly activities, the group will also be fundraising to support the continuation of the weekly sessions once the funding period draws to a close. Our first event will take place on Saturday 10 June with our Creative Challenge family day. Take part in our colossal artwork, watch artists demonstrate different techniques, and have a look at the jewellery for sale – all made by the Creative Age participants. All proceeds go directly to the project.

Creative Age is delivered in partnership with Equal Arts and is funded largely by Comic Relief and Arts Council England. If you would like to take part in the project please speak to a member of staff or email learning@sunderland.ac.uk.
